Well off-topic now.

Transponders on civil aircraft implement a subset of the military
Mark XII IFF system. This is no coincidence: military aircraft
should treat civilian aircraft as friendly... Mode S (civilian)
and mode 5 (encrypted version of mode S for the military)
are used by TCAS to avoid collisions. So civilian
transponders are IFF systems with restricted capabilities.
This is probably not a suitable place to discuss this further.
